Easy writing forms a crucial part of the modern day education system. However, just because essay writing is ubiquitous doesn't mean that it's a simple thing to do.

Anyone can draft an essay. However, not every person can write a good essay. It takes time and practice to write it effectively. The topic of how to craft a free essay is quite wide.

In this article, we'll look at the factors to consider when writing an essay. These have the potential to influence the effectiveness of your writing.

  • 1.The Topic
  • 2.The Outline
  • 3.Target Audience
  • 4.The Content

You may have the discretion to choose the topic or not. Where you have the discretion, you cannot afford to choose the wrong topic.

A number of students will mess themselves by choosing the wrong topic. The chances of success with an unmanageable or too hard topic are quite rare. Don't choose a topic if you don't know anything about it.

Where you can't choose your own topic, ensure you get an understanding of the topic before setting out to write it. You can't write an essay that doesn't relate to the topic. This is one of the biggest mistakes you can make.

Well, the question of whether you should consider the outline before writing your essay is debatable. Here is why outlining your content before creating it is quite helpful. Well, in some other stances it may be useless.

The decision to use or not to use the outline depends on the topic, purpose and the environment in which you write the essay.

For instance, when writing an essay as an exam, you won't have that time to create an outline. However, if there is time, you can sketch a skeleton of your essay. Otherwise, you begin writing the document.

When writing an essay as part of your assignment, then you will need to create an outline. The reason being that this essay tends to be longer than any other form of writing.

Well, outline forms an important but not a crucial aspect of the writing. It will help improve the quality of your essay.

Your audience is the person who will read your essay. It narrows down to the purpose of your essay.

The effectiveness of your writing can only be measured by the person reading it. In your opinion, you may think that the document is great while in the real sense it is not. Well, in any academic writing, you don't write that which you think is good. Instead, you write the content for the person who will read the document.

The reader may be your lecture or professor or any other person. Be sure to keep in mind their expectations and the guidelines they've provided. The content you create can only be created in accordance with the rules.

Here, you need to write the introduction and the body of your essay. The content needs to be captivating and factual. In most novels, you can tell whether the person knows how to write or not by reading their first pages.

The content you create should be factual and should create an impact on the industry.
